Located just west of the heart of downtown Los Angeles, MacArthur Park is one of the oldest and most significant parks in Los Angeles with a rich and colorful history. Since its opening in 2007, more than 200,000 people have gathered at Levitt Pavilion MacArthur Park to create community through music. Long the jewel of Los Angeles and the center of Arts and Culture, MacArthur Park is returning to its rightful place as the “Art & Soul of Los Angeles”.
